The Town of Canmore identified affordability as a primary focus in their strategic plan, with an understanding that affordable housing is crucial to the success of their community. The Town launched their Livable Canmore campaign, and the Whistler Centre assisted in this initiative by designing and executing a creative and effective engagement strategy that solicited input from a broad range of the community (the ‘UNusual suspects’) through a variety of tactics that included: a community presentation and discussion at a popular downtown café, neighbourhood block party conversations, an on-line questionnaire, six ideas walls, pizza party workbooks, and a solutions-focused world café workshop. A summary ‘What We Heard’ report was prepared for the Town.
